I am an extensively qualified teacher holding an FLCM (Fellowship Diploma London College of Music in Jazz Guitar). ALCM (Associate Diploma, London College of Music). Graduate Diploma in Jazz from St Andrews University. An Advanced Diploma from St Andrews University & many more.

My approach to teaching the guitar is simple, I make sure my students enjoy their lessons and reach their goals. I also respect that every student is different and will create a lesson plan that suits the needs of the individual. This may be learning some songs, Learning to solo or achieving a graded exam. I believe we can achieve this together.

Beginner students are more than welcome to take lessons. Always make sure you remember that we all have to start somewhere. For beginner guitarists, I really focus on helping you achieve that “Next Level” of guitar playing. However, I make sure we lay a good foundation of the basics first. I also teach younger learners from the ages of 8 upwards as well as many adults. I would be happy to help you learn guitar, for any more information or to book a lesson please get in touch using the contact information below.

Lessons & Costs

Here at Guitar Lessons Aberdeen, my lessons are always structured to be as enjoyable as possible regardless of which lesson route you wish to take.  Some of my students may wish to take a formal approach to learning guitar, this will include learning Rockschool exams from grades 1 to diploma level as well as paying close attention to theory and music knowledge. The more informal approach would consist of learning classic rock or popular songs, Learning to improvise a solo & the theory behind it, Learning how to write music and perform in bands whilst analysing all aspects of guitar playing and music technology.

I welcome students of all abilities and ages. I have years of playing and teaching experience and I feel this is something that can be applied to creating enjoyable lessons for all levels and styles. So whether you are a beginner and not sure where to start or a more advanced player who is struggling to get past that barrier you have been stuck at for years. I believe my enjoyable attitude to teaching the guitar can help you get over any problems you may have.

I charge £15 per half hour for lessons taken at my home teaching space located in the city centre (Mayberly Street). To find out more about my professional guitar lessons to not hesitate to get in touch by emailing [email protected]
